A soul that aspired to live the Christic path and be like their Lord struggled every day with human temptations and tendencies and, feeling themselves to always be defeated by the world, they questioned God, asking Him: "Lord, how will I be able to defeat the temptations of the world and overcome the vices of the flesh, which seem so dominant within my human condition?"
And the Lord responded to them, also with a question: "Little soul, did I not give you the example for overcoming the human condition? Did I not defeat the vices and tendencies of humanity, in fragile and mortal flesh, through My Son? So then contemplate the Cross of Christ, for there you will find the answers to your deepest questions; there your body, mind and your feelings will be moved to experience transformation. Through the Love of Christ, you will find the key and the momentum to choose the Christic life, rather than that of the world, in each life situation where temptations should appear.
The Passion of Christ must be your refuge, where you must run to each time the world seeks your heart. When you are tempted to choose the things of the world, place your eyes upon the Cross and contemplate each injury and wound of the Lord. All this was for you, so that today you could choose Love over illusions, so that today you could discover who you are, and not remain with the veils covering your face.
Human vices are only defeated when your consciousness is captured by a higher Love that allows you to walk toward Christ, and that Love is to be found in the Cross. For this reason, every day, contemplate the Lord of Calvary, and there you will find peace."
I tell you this story so that you know how to defeat the world that is stirred within you, in that constant battle between the old and the new human that is lodged within your hearts.
You have My blessing for this.
The Most Chaste Saint Joseph
